Re: Big Red Machine
The clutch bat of Perez and the health of Gary Nolan.
Tony was one of the best at getting the important RBIs. Others on the team had more, but Tony's won more games.
One thing many forget about the BRM is when Nolan was healthy, they were in the World Series. When he was unable to pitch, they did not make it. He is vastly underated. Before his arm problems, he was one of the best. An argument can be made for him over Tom Seaver for rookie of year.
